What is required for CHILE to recognize legal documents?

Hi there,
Helping my mom to get legal documents for her father's estate.
Have obtained certified copies and local state Apostille for all of them.
Believe I now only need to go to a Chilean embassy and have them verify the documents?
Does anyone know if they will do this by mail, or if I must go in person? (Nearest is almost 400 miles away.)
Thanks!!

The Chilean consulates had notarios on staff to officialize documents which originated outside Chile. I believe that it is no longer necessary to have them notarize documents as they are now party to the Hague convention. Your apostille should be all you need. At any rate a phone call to the Chilean consulate should confirm that.
